Adrien Dix MLA speaks to supporters outside Nelson Post Office encouraging those present to vote “yes” to ditch HST and Re-instate GST/PST by Nelson Becker

I was down by the Nelson Post Office where Adrian Dix, NDP Provincial leader, and Michelle Mungall, MLA for Nelson and Creston, were encouraging people to vote yes on the referendum to eliminate the HST and revert back to the previous system of GST and PST. “It will cost much less to annihilate the HST opposed to keeping it. Here in Nelson, small businesses thrive because people like to shop. We have a small business economy and rely on disposable income to support that. It, (the HST) is not going back

into health care and education; things that we anticipate our taxes are paying for. It’s going to give big corporations a break, yet again. We can afford this in our province any longer. We can’t afford to keep the HST.” I asked Michelle Mungall how she would respond to questions of “wouldn’t the reversion back to the HST, PST cost a lot of money?” and “what would be the changes to our HST, PST system if it came back into place?” “What will happen if the HST is voted down? We will go back to the GST, PST system with the exemptions that

existed prior to the HST. That would be zero percent tax on bicycles, bike repairs, helmets, food in restaurants and delis, groceries, home renovations, funerals, wedding planning, acupuncture, alternation medicine, chiropractic services. That means more money in our pockets and that big corporations are paying their share.”

Strategies to save money. TRY to question yourself whether you really need to buy the product or thing. Also see what you have already, do you really need another one? Don’t smoke, save your money towards something you want. Make your own wine to save money. Bike or walk to work EVEN as much as I try, I find it very difficult to save money.

I also try to make more money, something the entitlements don’t do. I also make extra money by running my own business on top of a regular job and renting rooms out in my home when i have a goal. WE bought the smallest house that would meet our needs to save on heat, maintenance and of course the initial purchase cost.

Frequently Asked Questions How did you get my email address? The emails that we use for the Kootenay Express Update are emails of people who have done business with the Express Newspaper or are emails we have received by personal request to be on our list. What is the purpose of the Kootenay Express Update? The purpose of the Kootenay Express Update is to provide the service of a community newspaper with such features as an events calendar, classifieds, opinions, diversions, for the greater community of Nelson and area. How can my friends receive the Kootenay Express Update? You can send your friends our email and they can respond with the word “subscribe”, or “newsletter” or “update”. What is the privacy policy of The Express? We will never share your email with anyone outside of The Express. We feel

you are part of our family. Is The Express open for Editorial Submissions? Yes. We also want to support the nonprofits of our community and we welcome their editorial submissions. What happened to The Express Newspaper? The Express Newspaper existed as a print version for 22 years, but it could no longer compete against the big corporations for advertising. We are committed to being of community service and we are now in the process of creating the Kootenay Express Update as an alternative to the print copy. There are obvious benefits to an electronic Express Newspaper. We don’t have any printing costs or post office distribution costs. There is less restriction on space. Recipients can print out the pages that they so desire. There are also some disadvantages. Not everybody is internet connected. Reading off a screen is a different

experience than reading off of paper. The Express Update seems to me to be a valuable way to publicize my business. How do I place advertising in the update? We are still working on this because in setting a price for advertising we want to assure ourselves, and you, that you are getting the correct value for your dollars. We encourage you to get in touch with us so that we may begin this discussion with interested local businesses. How does the Kootenay Express Update support itself? At the moment, that’s a very good question. The Kootenay Express Update lives on a subsidy that it is receives from me, Nelson Becker. In the future, the Update will have to support itself. We are in the process of determining advertising value, as well as looking at other methods of raising the necessary funds.
